Flooding along the Mississippi River is having a limited impact on grain movement.
University of Minnesota Extension grain market economist Ed Usset suggests timing is a factor.
“The Mississippi River is very important to grain movement down to the Gulf. I think the good news is the export market is not exactly red hot right now, so that we probably have a little time to wait it out.”
He tells Brownfield the current situation on the river is better than last fall when the Mississippi was drying up.
